Superman, The Avengers and the (somewhat) baffling career of Keanu Reeves

The Nooner with PopRox live chat is the first Friday of every month at noon, and that means we have another one coming up Friday.

Four Reasons to be Worried About Glee

Unapologetically, unflinchingly, unfailingly, I’m a Glee fan. It was the best and funniest new show of the last television season, featured the most impressive pilot episode of any show in years and did it all by introducing relative newcomers to the TV landscape.

Why Entourage Doesn’t Work in Syndication

It’s rare to tease a blog entry, because usually, I don’t know what I’m writing about until I come into work in the morning and check the news.

Taylor Swift. Kanye West. Enough.

Straight links today, they’ve been gone too long: Am I the only one who doesn’t care about the Taylor Swift-Kanye West thing? Didn’t it happen, like, a year ago or something? Why are we still talking about it now? Was it that bad in the first place? This is why it doesn’t matter — because [...]

Premiere (and Finale) Watch

With the start of the fall TV season now underway and the summer shows wrapping up, we’re in review mode. All of these are completely spoiler-heavy, so if you haven’t watched any of these shows yet and want to be surprised, don’t read these reviews. Except for the Hellcats review. Read that one, and then [...]
